Video: Talking Heads Perform ‘Psycho Killer’ at CBGB in 1975

The Talking Heads were just another young band on the burgeoning CBGB scene in December of 1975 when a tiny camera crew entered the dingy club to capture their brief set. The (then) trio had played their first-ever show that past July as the opening act for the Ramones, and they were fast at work writing material. David Byrne was just 23, but he’d been in and out of bands since his high school days. Check out an early version of “Psycho Killer” here with slightly different lyrics.
